BENEFITING: EARTH ISLAND INSTITUTE INC
Women’s Earth Alliance (WEA) creates innovative solutions to issues of water, food and land through collaborative initiatives that train, connect, and empower emerging women leaders.
WEA offers a new model for community development that uplifts local knowledge and optimizes global connectivity through partnership with women leaders -- community caretakers, mothers, and environmental and cultural resource stewards. Our approach is simple:
1. We identify underserved regions with environmental degradation. We build long-term partnerships with highly-skilled but under-resourced grassroots organizations. We listen for local solutions and collaboratively define where outside resources can help.
2. We identify women leaders who are “cornerstones” -- those who care for others, protect natural resources, and invest in long-term solutions. We equip them with training, funding and advocacy support.
3. We creatively showcase these grassroots solutions to a broad audience to educate, activate and connect
